Cyfnod o atgofion manwl ac urddasol am arhosiad yr awdures ar ynys Hokkaido yng ngogledd Siapan a chofnod sy'n cynnig sylwadau ac argraffiadau am ddysgu iaith, am lên gwerin, am unigrwydd ac am berthyn. Mae newidiadau'r tymhorau yn thema ganolog yn y llyfr hardd hwn sydd ar rhestr Fer Llyfr y Flwyddyn 2016.

As precise and nuanced as Japanese calligraphy, this memoir of the author's stay on the remote Hokkaido island in northern Japan is as much about learning a language as it is about the peripheral, folklore, loneliness and learning to belong. With its themes of seasonal transformation, this dignified work evokes what is cultured and cultivated while honouring the wild.
